The extension uses chrome's local storage to keep track of state for each URL. You can use the Clear cache button to clear your local storage content to start anew.
You may run into the
quota exceeded error. Should you encounter this error, the extension will pause of the removal process and present to you a
continue button. Wait a considerable amount of time (I have no idea how long) and click on `continue** to pick up where it has left off.
I haven't run into this yet with the new google search console. Please open an issue should you encounter it and let me know how many URLs you've submitted to trigger this.
While the extension is at a paused state, you can also inspect what URLs are still pending to be removed. Right click anywhere on the page and select Inspect. Then, click on the View local storage button. The current local storage state will be printed out under the Console tab.
